September 13, 2001
When Elvis Presley first played Las Vegas in May 1956, he was scorned by the city’s critics, who found the future rock king’s decidedly un-Rat Pack music an abomination. More than a dozen years later, Presley returned to Vegas triumphant, having reasserted his ruling status with 1968’s “Comeback Special.” Elvis spent the remainder of his life playing the fabled city, his music diminishing at an equal clip with his declining health. “Live in Vegas” is a protective four-CD box set that tries to make the best of the king’s final years. Disc One contains an unreleased concert from Aug. 24, 1969, 25 days into Presley’s month-long stint at the International Hotel, his first live appearances in nearly a decade. At this point, Elvis was genuinely involved in the material, determined to prove that he was still relevant. Unfortunately, most of the tunes are straight out of an “oldies” show. A whopping batch of ‘50s hits are dragged
The Mag: Movie Spread
September 13, 2001
American Pie 2 Screenwriter Adam Herz works with bodily discharges and fetishes the way a jazz musician handles melodies and instruments. The storyline for the sequel pretty much follows the first “American Pie,” but Herz and director J.B. Rogers (“Say It Isn’t So”) manage to elicit a surprising amount of guilty chuckles for a retread. This time around the guys (Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Seann William Scott and Eddie Kaye Thomas) are fresh out of their first year of college and are living together in a Lake Michigan beach house. Herz has a pretty good idea of what worked in the first movie, so there is more of Eugene Levy as Jim’s well-meaning but intrusive dad, and Alyson Hannigan (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), who stole the last film as a band camp devotee, has a more substantial and affectionate role. It’s encouraging that the new film’s funniest gag involves a trombone that has no kinky complications. If Herz and his collaborators keep up this type of comedy, they may one day succeed at making flicks that don’t rely on violating innocent flutes or pastries. (R) — DL

Local briefs
September 13, 2001
Investigation: Train victim identified The body of a man who died after he was run over by a train early Sunday morning has been identified, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday. He is Joseph A. Pfeifer, 26, Lee’s Summit, Mo. Pfeifer was lying about 1:45 a.m. on Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad Tracks just west of East 1750 Road when he was run over by a westbound Amtrak train, sheriff’s officers said. The man was seen by train crewmen, but they were unable to stop the train in time. An investigation of the incident is continuing, but it is being considered an accident at this time, Lt. Kathy Tate said. “Why he was there, we don’t know,” Tate said. __________________________ Tribute: Fire & Medical vehicles display memorial ribbons Colored ribbons are waving from the antennae of Lawrence fire trucks and ambulances in special tribute to emergency service personnel in New York and Washington, D.C. Red, blue and black ribbons were attached to Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical vehicles Wednesday, Deputy Chief Mark Bradford said. The red signifies the fire and medical services, and blue signifies police services, Bradford said. The black is a memorial to those killed Tuesday in the terrorist attacks in the two cities, he said. “This is something that may catch on around the state,” Bradford said. Lawrence Police also wore black mourning bands across their badges Wednesday. No decision has been made about how long the ribbons will be displayed, Bradford said. __________________________ Found: Missing teen home, safe A 14-year-old Lawrence girl reported missing by her mother earlier this week is back home, safe and sound. Megan Latulippe returned home about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, her mother, Vicki Musser said. “She was tired and hungry,” Musser said. “We’re so happy to see her.” Musser called police Monday to report her missing daughter. She at first thought Megan had run away from home because of some arguments they’d had. Musser, however, became worried that someone might have been holding Megan against her will. That wasn’t the case. The girl had been with some other people in Tonganoxie who had taken her in, Musser said. After a story appeared about Megan in Tuesday’s Journal-World, Musser received numerous calls and offers of help, she said. “We got great cooperation from the Police Department,” Musser said. “We got a lot of support from a lot of wonderful people. We were surprised at how many people said they wanted to help. This is a great community.” __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.599 at Zarco 66, 1500 E. 23rd Street, Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue; and Conoco, 23rd and Harper Streets.

They give viewers similar privileges in “The Deep End.” Like “Blood Simple” before it, the new film generates a good deal of suspense as characters wander into danger because they don’t know information that has been made plain to the audience early on.

Lead stories In July, an otherwise-successful Hooters restaurant in Augusta, Ga., was forced to file for bankruptcy protection from creditors as an effect of the jury verdict earlier in the year penalizing it $11.9 million for an unsolicited-fax advertising campaign it had conducted to about 1,300 potential customers. A previously obscure 1991 federal law bans such faxes and sets a penalty of up to $500 per transmission, but such fax advertising was fairly widespread until the Hooters verdict (and continues even today by firms apparently unaware of the court decision). A Hooters executive said Congress could not possibly have intended a $12 million penalty for “a few pieces of paper out of a fax machine.”
